This will be my last regularly-scheduled column. After 18 months, I feel that the time has come to pass the baton to someone else. I wish to thank Editor Roger Marsh for giving me the opportunity to share some of my research with the Journal’s readers. I will make guest appearances from time to time, as developments warrant.
After researching the UFO “phenomenon” for 40 years, I must conclude that the technology involved is so advanced that a human origin for it can be automatically ruled-out in almost every bona fide sighting case. The radar data alone substantiate the presence of unknown craft in our atmosphere whose capabilities are vastly beyond our own aircraft and which defy known aerodynamic principles.
Therefore, the available facts suggest to me that extraterrestrial visitation, by one or more races of beings, is occurring. Indeed, the idea of effective faster-than-light travel has now gained respectability among theoretical physicists—with more than 100 papers on the topic having been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals—even though empirical evidence to support its reality is currently lacking.
